Few things are worse than answering a call from an unknown number, only to be locked in a survey, sales or marketing chat. But for users of Google’s Nexus handset, there’s no worrying about this anymore. The device’s previous major update in 2013 delivered caller Identification. The recent update though makes this feature even more powerful. Why? Because it puts a barrier between the end user and spam callers. Currently, this spam protection will only work on Android One and Nexus handsets.
But Google’s caller app already has aggressive competitors in the market. For instance, Truecaller, is a useful app that is widely used in India and a lot of other emerging markets. Truecaller crowdsources a database of phone numbers so that it can figure out identify information.
Google’s functionality will allow users to both block and report spam callers. Definitely, the update will ease the life of Android users.
